Happy New Year, Everyone!










Dear Constant Readers, welcome to 2017. We hope this year kicks all sorts of ass for you.

There follows a list of some of the things Aaron would like to see in 2017:

1 – Cut out the exploitative re-issues.

Seriously, record companies. Stop reissuing things that have already been reissued, just to throw on one extra track you didn’t add last time. It’s obvious you’re holding things back to soak the true fans over and over, and we don’t appreciate it.

2 – Drop the LP prices to reasonable rates.

This one should be self-explanatory. But if you cut the prices in half, we might buy more over time.

3 – Hipsters Go Away

For once and for all, I want all the hipsters to discover vintage toasters, or cassettes, or yo-yos, or anything else. Then they can go away and leave the rest of us alone the way things used to be. This one might help entries 1. and 2. in this list too…

4 – Metallica

It’s a dead cert they’ll tour. I have never seen them (I know!) and I really wanna go. This needs to be my year!

5 – Mastodon

I’ve been told (and am reading online) that they’re releasing their new album at some point early this year. Of course I will be buying it. But it’ll mean they’ll be touring too, and I want to see them too!

6 – New Tool record

This isn’t too much to ask, is it? It’s reported they have lots of material in the can already, so let’s go boys! It’s only been 10 frickin’ years since the last record…


As for the KMA Blog:

There may be a few changes on the KMA this year, too. I’m still working out the details but Aaron, anyway, needs to streamline, make blogging fit my current schedule… I also want to finish a few projects that I started ages ago and have allowed to languish. I have some ideas…

James, on the other hand, will surely just continue to offer quality content if and when he decides to do so. All as it should be.


Here’s to a brilliant 2017 for you all. Let’s GIVE ‘ER!
